Just because you're a professional motorcycle journalist doesn't mean you'll avoid unfortunate spills.
It's one thing to say that accidents happen, but it's something else entirely when an accident occurs out of sheer stupidity. Most drivers/riders take necessary precautions to insure their safety as well as that of others. But there's always that one guy who gets careless. In the video you're about to see, a motorcyclist working for French magazine Moto-Journal was filming a segment about the Yamaha FJR 1300 at the Port of Saint Martin.
Driving slowly on the dock, the rider still manages to lose control after hitting a metal pole. Unable to balance things out, rider and motorcycle go over the edge together and onto the docks below. Fortunately the rider was just fine, but his colleagues posted the video for our amusement.
